    Ok Guys!

    This is new and believe me, no one like changes. There has been a lot of improvement and effort to put this in place and I believe the judgement you all are making seems pretty hasty. There have been only couple of days since new SCN is live and therefore I think you should give it some time before you should judge it.

    How many of you remember the day when you first saw old SDN layout? I remember mine, though it has been more than 5 years now. I simply thought "What the hell is this?". At that time, I couldn't find any proper way of browsing things on SDN. When I checked the forum, I was all blank if I should really use something like this. However, slowly as time passed, I started liking it and soon it become one of my favourite pasttime.

    Have you noticed:

    - how easy it is to follow, bookmark and track

    - how interesting it is to get better ways to socialize professionally

    - how advanced the UI is in terms of posting things

    - how thoughtful the point allocation is

    and the list can go on and on...

    Having said that, I know that there are some bugs and some differences than the old SDN. I know that there is a dedicated SCN team which is working hard to resolve them as soon as possible. Remember, you managed to post things here simply means that the new SCN is user friendly enough to self explain its offerings. 😉

    P.S I am not an SAP employee 😊 Neither am I saying that new SCN is the best thing out there to solve all your needs, I am just asking to "give it some time" "and give some time to it".

    Regards,

    Prateek Raj Srivastava

    Change is constant.......

    But, Ease of use & improvements are expected with changes........

    They should surely, make it more user friendly.

      As Prateek & Mariana mentioned the new SCN is more flexible to track,bookmark,UI,social and additional features,Since it is new view might be bit different as days passes we will feel the new SCN layout is good & comfortable.

      I would like to share a survey storey... A group of people were selected for a survey and asked which finger they will use for doorbell. The age group greater than 20 said forefinger,Where as age group less than 20 mentioned thumb.It was reavelled that due to video game,mobile phone & hand held device usuage the younger generation finds thumb is more felxible.

      Cheers

    The new format is worth than useless. It is much more difficult to find what you are looking for. This is terrible!!!!

    • Concerning "finding what you are looking for", use google. This is not meant sarcastically. Google was superior in comparison with the old search possibilities and still is in comparison with the new ones. Just go for google and use the parameter site:scn.sap.com and all is good :-P

      Still, issues are notably getting worked on in my opinion. The logout-issue seems to have been killed. Performance is better (not good, but better than right after the launch) and hopefully will still increase a lot. The new navigation etc is indeed confusing at first but I was able to find the forums I was active in 'ye olde sdn' with the mapping help on the start site.

      One more thing. All this "urgh I want my old sdn back!" reeks of the age-old wisdom "grumpedy-grump yesterday will be better >:-(". I am VERY grateful SAP took this step especially strategy-wise. I've infrequently (if perhaps not at all) seen SAP throw things away just because they were old and beyond-legacy but still working out somehow. So, keep it up, guys!

      Cheers, Lukas
